But anyway! Back to the cool challenge! I'm going to complete something every day. It can be anything: a knitting project, a 30 minute run (that's pushin it, too! I never make myself go for that long *wimp*), a book, playing a long piano piece, a painting, cooking an entire meal, etc. I have a habit of starting things and just leaving them be until they are so dusty and dull I can't bare to look at them, so I just toss them. I can't tell you how many knitting projects I've started and dropped. Or books. It makes me feel very incomplete, unbalanced. Unravelled I guess.
Today I used the new goal to stimulate me into rearranging my room. Now I have a little craft table!! It's nothing like the ones I've had in the past--3ftx7.5ft table top, piled high with tools and supplies), but I am already in love with it. It's tiny, with limited surface space, made from two organizing shelves rotated to act as legs, and a plank of wood. And because it is not at a normal height, I sit on a chair with my meditation cushion to help me get in the right position. hahaha It took me much more than 3/4ths of the day (shame, shame on me), because I just couldn't decide on where to put things for the life of me! I have a huge bed and a rather large hutch in this room I'm staying in (there's no way in hell I could move either one) which led to some interested puzzles in my head for how to make it all work. I think it does. It's not streamlined or as gorgeous as many of those studios on flickr or in Somerset's WWW, but fuck. I can't live without working on some more crafty biz!
So lovelies (or lovely as it may be hehe), I hope YOU challenge yourself with something! Tomorrow I will post a picture of my new crafty table, but tonight the light is all gone (despite the spring forward on Saturday morning). Looooove to you!
